Restoring mountain cloud forest through native wild harvested tea.

So close to our first funding target

Hello and thank you again for your amazing support for our crowdfunding campaign.

You guys have done an amazing job in helping us raise almost £16k which means we have almost hit our first funding target of £18k. With this amount of funding we can continue to run our Milking the Clouds project for another year. This means that we can plant 1000's of Tabaquillo seedlings on Champaqui which will have a massive positive impact on the water cycle of a huge ecosystem. This impact is felt by all plant and wildlife of the Champaqui region including over two million residents of the Valle de Traslasierra, Cordoba, Argentina.

We will also be able to continue local educational workshops in schools which is a fundamental part of safeguarding the future of this environment and inspiring the next generation to value nature and our ability to collaborate with her.

And last but not least we will be able to continue to harvest the wild mountain herbs that make our Champatea blend.

In order to get us over the line we are hoping that you can help by spreading the word about our campaign with your networks. If you have any friends or colleagues that you think would be interested in what we are doing then please share a link to our page. Please share on facebook if you have not already as every little share really does help.

Thanks again and we hope you are enjoying your tea!

Much love from the mountain
